Volunteering at my son’s school library means I get to help kids discover books they didn’t even know they wanted to read–and also means I can check out books without exceeding my son’s 5th grade (3 books per student) limit.
I get my own limit of books to check out. Because I’m a volunteer.
As a writer of kidlit: HOW HELPFUL IS THAT.
Currently, I’ve checked out a little stack of books on the planet Jupiter and one of Jupiter’s many moons, Europa, perhaps the most important moon, because it might harbor life in its ice-blanketed ocean, which suits my sequel perfectly.
Yours in planets, infinite possibilities and what is, so far, fun research,
PS. an arm of my prescription reading glasses broke off. I find it no easy feat to read, turn pages and hold glasses steady. Reminds me of my juggling days, only now I’m not as coordinated…
